Girard Ceramic Containers


glazed by hand


D18 x H33 cm




The hand-glazed Ceramic Containers (1952) are based on Alexander Girards original turned wooden objects. Their silhouettes are reminiscent of the traditional shapes of apothecary jars, pawns or hat moulds.

The jars can be used to store all kinds of small items such as keys and coins. The natural material gives the Ceramic Containers an artisan flair.

The original wooden objects are kept in the Girard archive of the Vitra Design Museum. Using these models as molds, Vitra developed the Ceramic Containers made of cast ceramic together with the Girard family. The hand-glazed pieces feature shades from the rich colour palette of Girard.
